What People Say About Dr. Jose Diaz, MD

Dr. Jose Diaz misdiagnosed me with Parkinson’s about 3 years ago. After being diagnosed I was also told that I couldn’t drive. I had recently lost a great friend to Parkinson’s. I fell into to a very deep depression and contemplated ending it all. It took me 8 months. After 28 months, Dr. Diaz sent me for a brain scan that proved that I didn’t have Parkinson’s. I asked for and received my entire patient records with Doctor’s note from my monthly visits. I was able to see that Dr.Diaz doubted his original diagnosis s soon as 90 days after my first visit. If he had given me that information, it would have changed my whole view by allowing me to have a much higher degree of hope. I wouldn’t have suffered the worst 8 months of my life and would not have contemplated suicide. Additionally, his staff is the worst group of administrators I had ever seen. I had to drive to their office to make an appointment bc they never answered their phones or their voicemail.

I have been mistreated by all his staff. When I needed forms filled out for disability, his office manager "Jennifer" argues that what I said they said on the phone "I know that is not what they said." I was on a recorded call with Social Security Administration who gave me directions of exact facts they need. I made a google doc asking for that information. I asked if I had to play the recording of the call for her to believe that is what SSA wanted. Jennifer says "No. Because I have worked with them for years and I know. Plus we have our own forms and requirement. Just because you say they want it does not mean we will do it." I asked "Are you going to continue to tell me what I heard is not what I heard?" She responds, with "I never said that." These are exact wordings of her comebacks. I am in my mid thirties and have always had to get my mother involved for anything to get done. My mother was on the phone with her while I wrote this, and now Jennifer tells me that she will do it

After 1st visit (I do agree about front office) my images weren't allowed to be sent to me directly, but can be sent to my team of Dr's (who I would see sooner than f/u here). I did (as always) make an appt BEFORE I left and asked for sch ext just in case. My imaging wasn't of concern so I waited for my f/u. That day, l visited 2 Dr appts prior to seeing Diaz and my symptoms decided to show almost full force while I was in having consult. Orig condition ruled out but able to formally dx the underlying rare conditon. I could now go back to teach my team who then comes up w/new treatment plans which also helps others with what they learn from me. Diaz was happy to let me pick his brain. Other Neuro's dismissed me because they didnt take the time and bc I looked so "normal" (and didn't want to LEARN from someone younger w/o an M.D. in my name). Diaz is wonderfully patient, through and wants to help as he is a team player. Resch is much better than making new/1st appt esp on phone.

Is Dr Diaz aware of the performance of his office staff? I have tried unsuccessfully to schedule an appointment for an evaluation on a referral from my Orthopedic Dr. The 1st time, 4 phone messages left over 2 weeks. No response, I saw a different Neurologist. The 2nd attempt, 4 messages over 3 weeks, no response. I even had my Orthopedic Dr contact Dr Daiz's staff directly. Dr Diaz's staff assured my Dr's staff that someone would call that afternoon. No callback after a week.

Dr. Diaz has been my doctor for 14 years. He's knowledgeable, sensible and genuinely caring. He takes time for patients and makes sure you understand your condition and treatments. I agree with a previous poster that the office staff, while friendly and helpful face to face, is difficult to reach by phone. Very frustrating to make an appointment. They do sometimes drop the ball on other procedures.

Dr. Diaz is a polite, relaxed doctor that makes you feel confortable. His scheduling staff is by far one the worst when compared with other doctors in the Houston and Katy areas. Most of the time you have to leave a message for someone to call you to schedule an appointment. He has a large staff, so it is difficult to understand why there is no one dedicated to answer the phone.
